Coventry boss Andy Thorn sees his side's 2-2 draw against Peterborough as a point gained, despite Emile Sinclair's 76th-minute equaliser.

Cody McDonald's header and Gary McSheffrey's penalty had put City on course for a much-needed win after they cancelled out Sinclair's superb opener, but the recalled Posh frontman grabbed his second from close range late on.

"I thought we showed great character to come back from one down, real determination," Thorn said.

"We got our heads in front and then we dominated possession and created chances but, fair play to them, their 'keeper did well to get his hand on a few things and we're disappointed to concede the second in the manner we did."

Despite being denied a third successive victory and the club's first win from a losing position for two-and-a-half years, the point extended Coventry's unbeaten run to seven games and perfectly sets up Easter Monday's crucial showdown with relegation rivals Bristol City.

"I thought this would be our banana skin because Peterborough are a form team, they're are a good, well-managed side," Thorn added.

"At the end of the day it's another point towards where we want to get. After the start I would have taken it, but when we're in front and we had those chances I'm a little disappointed we didn't see it over the line."

Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson was also happy with the point, which keeps his side out of immediate danger in the relegation race but still not mathematically certain of their second-tier status for another season.

He said: "We've lost too many games where we could have picked points up, especially at home.

"It's a good point for us because it keeps them (Coventry) nine below us and a deserved one in terms of the determination we had not to lose the game."
